BIOGRAPHY

Krokmitën is an experimental Death Metal band from Montréal.

       Krokmiten HETA Promo Picture

Krokmitën 2015 Line-up:

Simlev (Guitar + Vocals)
Guyot (Drums)




[pronounced croc-me-ten] Definition: Cajun phonetic spelling of the french word "croque-mitaine". A shapeless imaginary being used by adults to frighten children into behaving. Syn; Boogeyman, Bonhomme sept-heures, El coco, El ogro, Böögg, Monstret under sängen, Der schwarze Mann, Bicho Papão, Mörkö, Alploochra, Antchoutka, Bouloulou, Namahage...

In the early 90's, inspired by the peak of Thrash Metal and the early Death Metal scene, mainman Simlev and a couple of friends formed Krokmitën. They recorded two demos and played gigs in and around the Montreal area. Subsequently, each band member had to deal with their respective life obligations; a lenghty hiatus ensued.

With a fresh start in mind, Simlev rebuilt Krokmitën from the ground up, wrote and recorded 'Alpha-Beta' starting in 2005. The 46-minute track with animation synched to the music was then released in August 2011 with help from original drummer Mathz and newcomer guitarist Dubg. 'Alpha-Beta' created fans worldwide and was very well received by critics of the metal scene. Mathz parted ways with Krokmitën in late 2012 to pursue other projects, and Lupiaan, a long-time friend of the band, quickly became official drummer. While collaboration with Dubg came to an end, Simlev and Lupiaan slaved over production of the second official album that took over 20 months to create. A 50-minute non-stop piece called 'Omicron-Omega', saw the light of day in July 2014.

Simlev is now working on Krokmitën's third full lenght album titled 'HETA' with the help of drummer Guyot Begin-Benoit (ex Beyond Creation, Brought By Pain, Voidmask). The album should be released before the end 2016.
Stay tuned as things progress.

I really like those raw sounds and brutal vocals, it shows how music is one of the most flexible things in the world and metal is just so powerfull and that's why I love it so much. You guys did a great job, just keep doing it! Making music is obviously your thing!

Jeroen (Netherlands) 2012/11/04
Awesome tracks! Very refreshing approach on the Death Metal genre. Keep up the good work!

Arturo AT (Mexico) 2012/10/31
At fist, i was a little afraid of your proyect, didn´t hear anything from you in the past, actually I knew your work from Twitter. I most say, that your vision on DEATH METAL is UNIQUE as fucking hell! I´m not talking about just the music, but the lyric concept, wich I consider quite intelligent and propositive. The fact that you share so freely your music with the fans, it´s somenthing that shall be followed by a lot of new and, why not, old bands. The world has changed a lot in the last years, and the way you spread your work it fits perfectly to the needs of a new generation of MetalHeads and establishes a real-time relacionship with the fans all over the world. Thank you so much for this!

KROKMITËN: THIRD ALBUM HETA COVER REVEALED  
July 18th 2016

Montréal experimental death metal band KROKMITËN just officially unveiled the cover artwork for HETA on the band's official website, possibly hinting at a summer release. The final artwork is what Simlev, KROKMITËN's guitarist/vocalist captured as the album's concept.

HETA is mixed by Simlev, mastered by JF Dagenais (Kataklysm, Malevolent Creation, Misery Index) and will be available as a free download on the band’s official website and on its YouTube channel once released.

Frontman Simlev had this to reveal about this third offering: "HETA is a very primal and straight forward album. It will again consist of one non-stop single track clocking in at 36 minutes. The experimental aspect of Krokmitën is almost out of the equation this time around, but still features something ominous that you’ve probably never heard before. We're preparing something special for the release that I seriously think our fans will appreciate. A lot of water has flowed beneath the bridges here since Omicron-Omega and after all is said and done, I'm still working hard to release HETA this summer; since a DIY project like Krokmitën is an ever-learning experience, the process can become time-consuming, but there are no set-backs, everything is falling into place. As previously announced, Guyot has taken over drums duty on HETA: He's bursting with talent; fast, precise and creative. Some of you know him from Beyond Creation's first album, The Aura."

Watch GUYOT talk HETA and play parts of the upcoming album HETA.

"The premise for the album goes like this: In their quest to prove the existence of the elusive H particle and to know more about dark energy and dark matter, 10,000 scientists and engineers from over 100 countries gathered together to build the largest single machine our world has ever seen; a gargantuan particle collider powerful enough to create and disrupt stars on galactic levels. Little did they know that they were ripping apart the very basic structures of space and time, thus allowing an unknown insidious force to slither through and tap into the population’s most primal instincts, to violently unleash them and ultimately lead mankind to extinction!" adds Simlev.

KROKMITËN: Lupiaan to replace original drummer Mathz
November 26th 2012

Simlev, KROKMITËN'S frontman issued the following statement: "We are pleased to welcome Lupiaan in the band. He's is a very talented drummer, his technical skills, passion and commitment to the band, as well as a high human affinity with us immediately gave him a place in the band. Lupiaan has already started working with us on our next album "Omicron-Omega" for over a month now. We are ready to continue creating music with a new enthusiasm and a newfound energy. We have no doubt, he's the best man to fill the space left by such an important member. We've known Lupiaan for over 20 years now. Since the 90's, he supported us at gigs, helped us carry our gear, with promotions and whatnot. Overall, he always had Krokmitën's blood pumping through his veins."
